Grandma’s Sloppy Joes

Grandma's Sloppy Joes are also known as "Old Fashion Sloppy Joes". Did your Grandma make the BEST sloppy joes in your childhood? Mine too! I asked for the recipe and found out there was actually chicken gumbo soup in it. I was shocked but thought easy enough, so I went to the store picked up the can.... the ingredients were not something I was comfortable consuming or feeding my child. So I thought why not try to make my own version! It was a household hit!!
